Christina Mackie
The Judges III
March 9–April 27, 2013

Nottingham Castle, Nottingham, UK

New work commissioned for the collection, as a result of the Castle winning the Contemporary Art Society’s Annual Commission to Collect Award 2011.

This prestigious prize is awarded to one public gallery per year, to work with an artist on the creation of a new piece of work for the gallery’s permanent collection.

Christina Mackie’s sculptural installations combine natural, manmade and crafted materials to create a complex web of associations. She accumulates objects, sketches, photographs and materials and lays them out in a carefully choreographed sequence, like a train of thought made visible. Subtle references to landscape are made with painting, in clay and also by including rocks and mineral specimens.
